I haven't used any other winter balls, but Evils and Marbs are pretty good as long as they are not being used when it is colder than 40 degrees Farenheit.

I started paintballing in the winter, so I was born using Polar Ice, if you know what I mean.
Polar Ice work amazing, especially in the winter, even in Wisconsin where it can get pretty cold. I remember paintballing last year with them when it was below zero and my friends and I could hardly move we had so much clothing on, yet they still worked perfectly fine, even when everyone else's balls were chopping in their guns and freezing up.
They are doing their work this year too, and guess what; almost no one was using balls other than Polar Ice when my friends and I paintballed the other day, when it was around 30 degrees Farenheit outside. And the only people who were not using them had rough problems; I made off with a friend's two hopper fulls of balls that were smashed just from bouncing around on each other. I did manage to save around 350 of those balls by wiping them down that night ;-)
Polar Ice is the best paint you can buy if you play in the winter. Period.
10/10 if you are playing in the winter, and even pretty good if it is not cold outside.
Gloss Black 98 custom(painted)
16 inch Armson Stealth
Clear Dye Stickies
Great in cold
Don't break in gun but on impact.
They can be expensive.
These paintballs are great if you play in cold weather. Never had a problem with them at all. They fly good and break on impact. You really only need these if you play in cold weather, like the name says. But if it wasn't for these I don't think i would play in the cold at all. Other wise the paintballs would be breaking all the time and it wouldn't be worth playing.
Great paint for cold weather. I recommend this paint for anyone that plays in cold weather.

the most important thing is a good paint barrel match
the barrel is mostly up to u but i would reccomend something like an all american or a boomstick
Bright color fills
work in colder temperatures
Out of every paintball type that i have used this is most definatly the best. i have used then in the summer and they seem to work just as good. personally i dont think that they are expensive. after my bad time with useing premuims, they broke about 1 every 150 shots, but that isnt that bad. it was mainly due to my bolt. i have almost finished my first case and i would say i have only broken about 15 and those were mainly chops due to my hopper not feeding fast enough.
I am going to give this product a 10 because its the best paint that i have every used

The paintballs work perfectly in the J&J ceramic, its the perfect ball for the perfect barrel. I was amazed by how accurate and consistant the paint and barrel worked. I bought 1000 rnds and had to save 250 just bc they worked so nice i wanted to keep using them. Price can get a little high i think i payed like 16.99 a bag of 500. But for how excellant they worked it was worth it, the bright green showed up on everythign and every1, and after gettin pelted by a few of these people were calling their selves out instead of staying in.
The best of the best for the colder months of using paint. Works like a dream with the ceramic, bright thick fill, thick shell, wont break in barrel or guns, breaks on contact every time.
well, nothing "winter grade", but I've used Diablo (Draxxus) paint, ZAP (terrible), etc. But I like to stick with RPS El Tigre and All-Star when it is warm.

J&J edge series, etc. NO STOCK BARRELS!!!!, cause let's face it,stock is never the "best"
I love this paint because I live in Mich. and it gets real cold here in the winter, So I can't just shoot any type of paint. Polar Ice is the only thing that I shoot in the winter, believe me, I have tried others (what a mess). Thick Shell, Thick Fill, all around good,except.....................
This paint is soo inaccurate, flat spots, dimple's, you name it!!! It used to be soo much better last year!!!! I am losing faith in Polar Ice, It's not so much that I am breaking paint in my barrel, but I mean these things fly every which- way. This is the ONLY RPS paint that I have had problems with. Not to mention the price, $80 a case, for this, you must be joking. For that price this stuff ought to shoot itself (accurately). Maybe this year the quality control has gone down, but c'mon, I'd be embarrassed to put my name on this paint, and charge soo much for it.
OK, with that said, This paint is really my only choice for winter paintball, just because it doesn't break in my barrel too often. Like I said, last year it seemed to be better. Price Sux, ought to be cheaper with this kinda quality. Maybe I've been paying too much for it, but I still expect way more from RPS. So I guess that if it's your only choice go for it. But expect to shoot twice or three times as many balls to hit someone, besides an occasional teamate. I honestly think that I'm gonna try that "Arctic Inferno" IT"S UP TO YOU!!!!!!!!!!
Anything non-stock, but even my stock barrels work well with them
This is by far the best paint you can use for outdoor winter play. Just yesterday we went out (I live in WI) and I used Polar Ice, and I had no breaks or problems whatsoever. They are heavier than most balls, so they will actually fly straighter to some degree.
Not for use during summer, they are a hard shell and will sting if you get hit. You also increase the chance of breaks during warm weather. Use these balls only if the temp is under 40-50 degrees. I have seen breaks in the tippmann flatlines which can be annoying.
Overall, you should not have any problems with this paint. RPS guarantees every paintball that comes out of their factories, so if you do see some dimples or scars, let them know, they will replace it for you. The people who have problems with these might have left them in a car overnight or didn't take care of them, which would explain the dimples/seams showing. Have your local store check all your bags of paint before you buy them. Look for breaks in the bag or other inconsistencies before you buy. Easiest way to not get ripped off. Some stores have a bad practice of loading too many cases on top of each other or just throwing them onto the shelf. Just make sure your paint looks OK before buying.
Zap(not good for winter)
Brass eagle(poorest balls ever)

anythink but stock barrels
These Balls are very good for winter, they almost never bust in my barrel or my friends barrels. People who use zap or other summer balls at the fields i go to have to clean their barrel about every ten shot. They are nice bright neon colors so you can see when you hit someone and they are all almost always round but you do find the odd dimple in them.
They are a bit more expensive than other balls but worth it for the winter play
These are great balls for playing in winter or cold temps. They cost a bit more but still are not too expansive for rps balls. I am told that 23* team colors winter fill are better and i do bust the odd ball so they arn't perfect.
boomstick, don't get it longer then 14", its pretty much a waste of wieght
good for playihng in cold wheather. i was playing with 6 of my freinds in a backyard and it was 20 degrees F. The paintballs worked perfectly, not one broke in my barrel/ chop, out of 1,200 shots. never found that they didn't break on target.
nothing, just use them in cold wheather, thats what they are meant for.
